Germany is quickly beginning to look like the next mega market for medical and eventually recreational cannabis. This is creating another big opportunity for savvy investors who are following the story and staying ahead of the curve.
Today, I am going to show you how you can profit.
But first - a little background.
Germany is the beating heart of Europe.
It is the largest country in the European Union with a population of 81 million.
It also has the largest economy in the European Union by a long shot. Its gross domestic product clocked in at $3.5 billion in 2016. Its per capita GDP of $42,000 makes it one of the wealthiest countries in Europe.
Companies that can gain access to the German consumer market have an opportunity to access tens of millions of wealthy consumers.
This is particularly true in Germany's young medical cannabis market. Continue reading "3 Cannabis Stocks Profiting from Germany's New Medical Program"

Pets are big business in the US and around across the globe.
In 2016 U.S. consumers spent over $67 billion on pet-related products, up 11% from the year before.
While food accounts for the highest percent of spending, pet medications were close behind at $8 billion. Spending on pet medications is expected to grow another 10% in 2017 to $9 billion.
These huge sales numbers have gotten the attention of the cannabis industry. Capturing even a small percent of the pet medication market could mean hundreds of millions in profit.
That's why I am excited to share an early industry leader that most investors have never heard of.
- Sales are up more than 1,000% in the last 12 months.
- Shares have risen 122% since January.
With the cannabis for pets industry still in its early stages - I see plenty of room for growth for this undercover cannabis company. True Leaf Medicine International Ltd. (TRLFF) is a Canadian cannabis company founded in 2013 and headquartered in British Columbia.
Shares are listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the ticker symbol MJ. I see average daily trading volume around 100,000 shares here, so this stock has plenty of liquidity for most investors. Continue reading "Hemp For Pets Company Up 122% In 2017"

Opioid abuse has quickly grown into a major global epidemic.
While opioids can be great for pain relief, the down side is that they are highly addictive. Recent data shows that opioid abuse and addiction is killing tens of thousands of people every year in just the United States.
Overdose deaths caused by prescription opioids have quadrupled since 1999. From 1999 to 2015, more than 183,000 people have died in the U.S. from overdoses related to prescription opioids.
This is an alarming trend that has both patients and health care professionals asking - are we capable of providing a better alternative?
According to a young biotech located Australia the answer is yes - and the solution comes in the form of cannabis.
If this young cannabis biotech is correct, not only will patients benefit, early shareholders will be rewarded with huge gains.
Let's take a look. Continue reading "Australian Cannabis Biotech Up 271%"
